Training – A Wise Use of Year End Budget Money
When it comes to spending year end budget monies, the phrase “Use it or Lose it” often applies. Training can be a wise choice for those looking to reduce a budget surplus.
Renting a Thermal Imager
Whether you are facing an equipment shortage or looking to evaluate the characteristics of a new imager prior to purchase, renting a thermal imager may provide a solution. As with purchasing an imager, there are several important things to consider when arranging for a rental unit.
Do You Have the Correct Time?
Most modern thermal imagers have the ability to record time and date along with thermal images. Taking a moment to ensure that the correct time and date are displayed on your imager before you begin your inspection can help to avoid wasted time and the collection of inaccurate data.
Determining Acceptable Load for Electrical Circuits
Infrared thermography is a useful tool for detecting heat patterns caused by overloaded electrical circuits. In this Tip we discuss what constitutes an acceptable load.
Introduction to Radiometric Calibration of Thermal Imaging Cameras and Other Infrared Instrumentation
Infrared Calibration Equipment includes two key items: a Blackbody Radiation Source (BBR) and a Reference Thermometer. The Reference Thermometer can either be a Contact Probe or a Transfer Radiation Thermometer (TRT).
Using IR Inspections to Help Prepare for Heating Season
For many facilities the beginning of autumn means that heating season is just around the corner. Infrared inspections can help point out the types of energy liabilities that can account for significant waste.
Why Building Corners Appear Cool
When performing infrared inspections of framed buildings from the interior, thermographers often note that corners appear at a different temperature. With this Tip we explore the reasons for this condition and how to differentiate potential problems from normal conditions.
IR Inspections During Motor Rebuilding
Thermography can be a valuable tool for testing and monitoring in-service motors. It can also be a useful tool for detecting hidden problems within motors that are being rebuilt.
